Share these nature exploration printables with your families to help add a little learning to their next family walk.
This is another free resource for teachers and families from The Curriculum Corner.
Young children love to get outside and play. Why not take advantage of this and take your learning outside? Children will definitely be engaged!
As children are finishing their school year learning at home, I know that many are looking for new ways to help children stay active.
These resources accomplish that goal along with encouraging them to get a little fresh air.
You will find the following printable resources:
Nature Walk Checklists Students will check off each item them find on their walk. The simple sentences will help children practice their reading skills.
I Went Outside Booklet Children will draw a picture of each item. When completed, they will have a simple book to practice their reading.
Writing Prompts These pages can be used for students to record what they saw outside. Students will use words and pictures.
Counting Mats The mats can be printed on card stock and laminated. Cut in half. Children can place the mats on the ground outside. Their task is to find the correct number of objects for each mat. For example, students might place four rocks on the number four.
You can modify this activity by having children choose two mats. They can then write an addition problem using chalk outside by adding the two numbers on their mats.
Nature Word Cards These 12 cards can be used for students as a scavenger hunt. They can look for the objects on the cards as they walk.
